Re:Walmart + Lindows -- This too shall pass.

Somebody at Walmart really laid into their crack pipe for this one. As pointed out already, Lindows isn't even a product yet! How STUPID did they have to be? They want to sell these to low-budget folx as a desktop system - so why not put the leading desktop distro out there - Mandrake - on them with Cross-Over Office/Plugin/WINE pre-installed? I guess that's what happens when a retailer tries to be a technician. On the other hand, you can wipe the drives and install whatever you want for a very fine price!
